Really close to down home cooking!

Probably the closest to down home cooking in a chain restaurant. The Blue Plate Special was great. Service was good and the location was easy to get in and out. Great for families!

They've got great meat & 3 veg choices for lunch and they are super fast. The service has to be super fast to keep up with the food flying out of the window though. I had to wait for refills and extra sauce for too long but the food came 5 minutes after we ordered. Better than sitting in a... More

This is a cheeseburger and chicken tender sort of place. It will fill you up if your hungry but it's extremely forgetable. If you want comfort food then it might be good for you. If you want something new and tasty , then try somewhere else.

My usual first stop in town for business is a great breakfast at the Blue Plate Cafe! Clean, friendly attitude, great food, great service and at a great price. It is where the morning crowd in Huntsville comes to start the day. I usually have the blue plate special - two eats, chesey potatoes, biscuit and gravy with hot tea... More

This is some great dinner food! The only warning I have is get there earl or it will be full and you will have to park far away. Trust me if you like dinner food it is WORTH it.

Breakfast is my favorite meal to eat out and the hardest to get right. The Blue Plate Cafe got it spot-on. Clean, speedy, professional with an inviting atmosphere, attentive service, and good food combine to make this a great place for a quick breakfast or a hang-out-over-coffee-with-my-favorite-people breakfast. The eggs were cooked to order, bacon was thick and crisp (not... More

Everyone seems to love this place. I've been here maybe four times over the last several years and I've never been impressed with the food. This last time it was downright awful. Terrible omelette, soggy yet charred hashbrowns, and a biscuit that was gray and doughy. I will say on a positive note that the service is always friendly and... More

I think it's good but, other people seem to really like it. They do have homemade lunches, which are good and will fill you up! The servers and cashier are nice. But, they don't stay open long. (I take that back, they may have changed hours.)
